I got one of these a few months ago, and connected it to the downpipe off my garage roof.


I use that water to water the garden, saving me water (I'm metered).


Rainwater is also better for your plants than tap water as it's slightly more acidic and contains more nitrogen than tap water.

Yes I wholeheartedly support rainwater harvesting. There are other uses, if you have an abundance, such as showering, washing machine - vg use far less powder, flushing toilet, dishwashing. Not advisable for cooking, consumption. Water collected off roofs may pass over bird droppings and also rotting leaves none of which should affect the above uses. You may want to create separate plumbing circuit for non-potable water. You could try using a system pressure pump instead of a separate tank in the loft
